What's the difference between malaria and miliaria?
(n.) Air infected with some noxious substance capable of engendering disease; esp., an unhealthy exhalation from certain soils, as marshy or wet lands, producing fevers; miasma.
(n.) A morbid condition produced by exhalations from decaying vegetable matter in contact with moisture, giving rise to fever and ague and many other symptoms characterized by their tendency to recur at definite and usually uniform intervals.
(1) The rise of malaria despite of control measures involves several factors: the house spraying is no more accepted by a large percentage of house holders and the alternative larviciding has only a limited efficacy; the houses of American Indians have no walls to be sprayed; there is a continuous introduction of parasites by migrants.
(2) Eighty-two per cent of patients with falciparum malaria had recently returned from Africa whereas 82% with vivax malaria had visited Asia.
(3) 236 patients with malaria were examined and treated.
(4) But both for malaria and Aids we’re seeing the tools that will let us do 95-100% reduction.
(5) In assessing damaged nets and curtains it must be recognised that anything less than the best vector control may have no appreciable impact on holoendemic malaria.
(6) Since then the intensive development of anti-malaria campaigns in urban areas over about ten years led temporarily to a considerable decrease in the level of endemicity, while in rural areas it remained unchanged.
(7) On land, the pits' stagnant pools of water become breeding grounds for dengue fever and malaria.
(8) immunoglobulin, purified from the plasma of local semi-immune blood donors, as an adjunct to standard treatment for cerebral malaria in Malawian children.
(9) Treatment with chloroquine and primaquine, together with packed red cell transfusions, was successful in eliminating both the malaria parasites and the leukaemoid blood picture.
(10) These C+ and R+ adherence properties of PE appear to mediate much of the pathogenesis of severe malaria infections, in part by blocking blood flow in microvessels.
(11) There was less of an increase following a blood meal infected with the rodent malaria parasite, Plasmodium berghei.
(12) Clindamycin, a semi-synthetic antibiotic of the lincomycin family, at a dose of 450 mg eight-hourly for three days in adults cured five out of 10 patients moderately ill with chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria.
(13) This test by virtue of its high sensitivity and the facilities in processing a large number of specimens, can prove to be useful in endemic areas for the recognition of asymptomatic malaria and screening of blood donors.
(14) A small clinic consisting of 1 room decorated with pamphlets against AIDS, malaria, and other diseases was managed by the chief primary health care (PHC) assistant named Joseph.
(15) Prospects for involvement in malaria control are numerous, however there is need to enhance the existing BHW Program.
(16) This latter event might be one of the factors which results in a correlation of Burkitt's lymphoma with malaria endemic regions.
(17) Hemoglobin S (Hb S) was significantly more prevalent in adults resistant to malaria.
(18) The proportion of persons with P. malariae in this sample population, as determined by slide examination, appears to be the greatest ever reported for any area before the introduction of control measures.
(19) Other causes are malaria (21), undernutrition (12), meningitidis (10), diarrhea (9), pneumopathy (7), endogenous and obstetrical causes (24).
(20) An indirect fluorescent antibody test for glutaraldehyde-fixed, ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen was performed on admission sera from 45 patients with complicated cerebral Plasmodium falciparum malaria, 33 with uncomplicated cerebral malaria, 91 non-cerebral malaria patients, and 53 blood donors from a non-malarious area.
(n.) A fever accompanied by an eruption of small, isolated, red pimples, resembling a millet seed in form or size; miliary fever.
(1) Microscopy demonstrated the features of miliaria profunda, with sweat duct occlusion and evidence of extravasation of sweat into the dermis.
(2) We describe skin changes in two siblings suffering from pseudohypoaldosteronism, who developed seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis or miliaria rubra-like lesions during salt-depletion crises.
(3) Studies of the sweating mechanism in juvenile plantar dermatosis have demonstrated features of miliaria, including inhibition of sweating and occlusion of the sweat coil in the horny layer of the epidermis.
(4) A retrospective study was undertaken to examine by interactive linear modeling a possible association between environmental conditions and the incidence of skin conditions (excluding athletes foot) in a coal mine following an increase in skin rashes, mainly 'prickly heat' (Miliaria rubra).
(5) Miliaria crystallina should be considered in the differential diagnosis of vesiculobullous eruptions in newborns.
(6) This clinical entity has not been described previously, and we suggest the name giant centrifugal miliaria profunda.
(7) Biopsy showed dilated sweat gland openings resembling miliaria rubra, which has not been previously reported in this age group.
(8) Among the last five patients with histological acne aestivalis one had clinical rosacea, one yersinosis and dermatitis herpetiformis, one acne vulgaris, one miliaria or transcient acantholytic dermatosis, and the last one folliculitis perforans.
(9) We observed 5387 infants over 10 years in weekly visits to a neonatal ward and obtained the following frequency data on these skin changes: erythema toxicum neonatorum, 40.8%; perianal dermatitis, 18.9%; scrotal pigmentation, 15.2%; miliaria, 8.5%; and adnexal polyp of neonatal skin, 4.1%.
(10) A case of miliaria crystallina occurring with isotretinoin therapy in a patient with lamellar ichthyosis is described.
(11) In tropical countries, predictive closed patch tests employing solid occlusive materials should be done during cool weather in order to prevent or minimize the occurrence of miliaria.
(12) Miliaria crystallina is characterized by intracorneal or subcorneal, 1 to 2 mm, clear, noninflammatory vesicles that typically appear in crops after a severe sunburn or during a febrile illness.
(13) To our knowledge, the association of miliaria crystallina with isotretinoin therapy has not been previously reported.
(14) However, three subjects who developed more pronounced miliaria rubra on the skin underneath rubber-glove squares were selected for provocative use tests.
(15) It is of great importance in the differential diagnosis of pustular eruptions in newborns due to virus or bacteria, of miliaria pustulosa, and of incontinentia pigmenti.
(16) Thermal as well as emotional stimuli to sweating cause severe itching in AD, yet the concept of a miliaria-type, poral occlusion mechanism remains unproven.
(17) Mild to severe forms of miliaria rubra were occasionally observed in about one fourth of the subjects during the induction and challenge periods since the weather was quite warm and humid.
(18) A fleeting dermatitis, Miliaria crystallina, developed in five of the seven subjects at the end of depletion, but disappeared as repletion began.
(19) With recurrent use, however, she developed miliaria following exertion.
(20) Moist occlusion promotes miliaria, and causes an increase in the coefficient of skin friction.
